100 points Stuart Pigott (JamesSuckling.com): "Let go of the narrow human world and fall into this expansive dry riesling that busts out of the conventional framework for the grape variety. And that's what makes it so difficult to describe. However, there is certainly more yellow fruit (mirabelle, but also a hint of pineapple) than white (some ripe pear) and the minerality is huge, yet totally precise and delicate. The finish really doesn't want to stop! From biodynamically grown grapes with Respekt certification. Drink or hold. (8/5/20)"

95 points John Gilman (View From the Cellar): "The 2019 Morstein GG from Philipp Wittmann hails from the family’s choicest three hectare plot of vines from their lovely five and a half hectare parcel in this great grand cru vineyard. The wine comes in at thirteen percent octane this year, with its acidity level at 7.4 grams per liter and residual sugars at 3.7 grams. The nose jumps from the glass in a marvelously sophisticated blend of apple, tangerine, a touch of pink grapefruit, wild yeasts, refined chalky minerality, citrus peel, lemongrass and a topnote of white flowers. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, focused and complex, with a fine core of fruit, stellar mineral drive on the backend, snappy acids and a long, laser-like and youthful finish. Morstein is one of my favorite terroirs from anywhere in the world of wine and the 2019 version from Philipp Wittmann is going to be a brilliant example. All this great wine needs is time in the cellar to blossom! 2030-2075. (Mar/Apr 2021)"
